This is pretty incredible. Someone has built the familiar George Nelson bench (retail about $700 depending on what size you get) out of LEGO plastic toy blocks. And it looks great!
Although initially this project was prompted by the cost of the bench, the Legos ended up costing a few hundred dollars, too, and the final product is not sturdy enough to sit on, but is obviously much more of a whimsical conversation piece!
